A num­ber of Mem­phis and Mem­phis-con­nected acts are set to per­form, many of them ap­pear­ing as part of a new ini­tia­tive called Music Ex­port Mem­phis

The non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion is a part­ner­ship be­tween the Greater Mem­phis Cham­ber and the Mem­phis Con­ven­tion and Vis­i­tors Bu­reau and is headed by El­iz­a­beth Cawein of lo­cal PR and mar­ket­ing firm Sig­nal Flow.

“The idea is it will func­tion as an ex­port of­fice for Mem­phis music and cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for mu­si­cians out­side the city and hope­fully abroad,” says Cawein.

This or­ga­ni­za­tion’s first event takes place Satur­day at Amer­i­canafest. The mu­si­cal show­case at the Film­ing Sta­tion in Nashville will fea­ture the Mem­phis Ukulele Band, Mark Edgar Stu­art, Mo­tel Mir­rors, Deer­ing & Down, the Bo-keys and Rev. John Wilkins.

A hand­ful of Mem­phis ven­dors and arts or­ga­ni­za­tions will be on hand.

The event will be open to fes­ti­val badge hold­ers. For more in­for­ma­tion, go to amer­i­
